Response to Exquisite Corpse
So this is the type of film that has the fabrication to reappear in my dreams at night and awake me to a cold sweat. All of these pieces of work were compelling and frightening. I think my favorite was the one about the Scab and I thought "Stretch" was pretty unique as well. I was under the impression that the woman's voice and the images were describing a drowning and it sounds like a most horrific way to die ...or maybe to almost die? I am not sure what happened to her in the end. All said and done, I want to watch this one again.

Well, start off by saying it was cool how he put all these films together into one piece. I wasnt really thrilled by it like I was Cumpleanos or Trust All Joy. I guess I am not a huge fan of surrelism. Out of all the part I enjoyed Scab. I dont know if that is because it made more sense. It would be a good video for Halloween.

Exquisite Corpse is possibly the best film we watched all year. I especially liked the part with the animation of the man in the electric chair. Minton did a great job in this humurous/scary film.

This whole collection blew me away. Its one of those series that you'd want to watch before holloween to get you into the spirit of things. Out of all of them the last piece in the end sticks out in my mind the most. Using the story with the baby and the tired annoyed father was a genius way to end the collection. Nothing leaves a greater impression then leaving the audience in a primal state of mind knowing that something horrible was about to happen to an infant and theres nothing you can do about it.

Great film because it sticks with you. As Missy said this is the type of film that has the potential to come back in your dreams and cause nightmares. That is the best way to describe it. Weird, but kept you thinking.
